Position Dog Walkers Wanted - Victoria
Location Saanich, BC, Canada
Impact Statement To assist and support older adults in the care and well-being of their canine companions. Help keep love in the home.
ElderDog is looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated, committed adults (19+) to support seniors who need help walking their dogs in the Victoria area.
ElderDog Canada runs 100% on the talent and dedication of volunteers. We support seniors who are living at home and experiencing challenges affecting dog care.
Walking dogs is an integral part of ElderDog’s mission to “help keep love in the home”. As the need in your community continues to grow, we need more volunteers to help us provide this essential service. And the need is especially high in James Bay and Downtown.
Training Details Soon after you start walking an ElderDog, you’ll realize the difference you’re making in the life of both the dog and their human companion. Not only are you helping to ensure the health and well-being of a cherished pet, for some of our more isolated seniors, seeing you might be the social highlight of their day. Many of our volunteers and seniors even forge very special, long-term friendships!
Working Conditions Match yourself to the right dog, in the right location, at the right time and day, for you.
Minimum Duration 4 - 6 months

Time Detail The process is simple: You apply to become an ElderDog walker, and once you’ve been approved, you’ll receive a weekly email about the ElderDogs who need walking and you choose who, when, where and for how long you’d like to walk.
